The Candy Police: Cruel Woman to Hand out "Fat Letters" to Moderately Obese Children on Halloween!
A very misguided and cruel woman in Fargo, North Dakota plans to hand out "Fat Letters" to children trick or treating that she feels are "moderately obese". Reading about this completely stunned me, I cannot believe that anyone would be so mean to a child.
What do you mean I can't have candy?
LOS ANGELES, CA (Rise Above Health Blog) - 'Cheryl' of Fargo, N.D., called in to a local radio station to describe her letter, which reads, 'Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats.' She went on to tell interviewers that she wants parents to know that they are being irresponsible for allowing their fat children to go out trick or treating for free candy.
Nasty letter to the parents of "moderately obese" children, from woman in Fargo, ND.
As a health care professional, I have mixed feelings about all of the "loot" our children collect and eat on Halloween, but the action of this woman has gone to far. Who does she think she is?
If she really has a conscience regarding candy and health, why doesn't she give all the children something other than candy like boxes of raisins or dental floss? By singling out the children who she deems "moderately obese" and giving them a letter for their parents, she could scar them for life. Imagine how you would feel at a vulnerable age, your self-esteem may never recover. I am wondering what she plans to give to the children who she deems are "obese"?
We have a health crisis in America and that includes our children. We are fatter than any other generation; in fact childhood obesity has nearly tripled since the early 1970's. Our children now have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression and obesity in alarming numbers.
I agree that we are a community that needs to help one another, but being cruel to children is not the correct way to go about it.
